Search By Tag: Kids at Midnight

Jane Elizabeth Hanley aka Kids At Midnight has been a Discobelle favorite ever since her Phoenix cover a few years ago, and in the meantime Jane has been experimenting with her sound, which today culminates in a new original single “Survival.” The Melbourne based singer/songwriter/producer’s sweet vocal carries the track through delicate arrangements of echoing keys and smooth thudded beats.

Kids at Midnight aka Jane Elizabeth Hanley has recently put out a new mix entitled “Perc Up Get Down.” You might remember her from her vocal cameo on Edwin Van Cleef’s rework of Phoenix’s Lisztomania. Well Kids at Midnight is Jane’s now solo project and we’re looking forward to what she’s conjuring up this year. For now, here is a selection of some of her new and old disco favorites.

I know Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s voice from anywhere. It’s honest and uplifting and has an effortlessly rich sound perfect for fun in the sun electropop music. In addition to providing vocals on several tracks you probably have in your iTunes library like Edwin Van Cleef’s rework of Phoenix’s “Listzomania,” JEH is also one half of Australia’s Kids at Midnight. The duo has been busy in the studio putting final touches on their latest double  A-side entitled Let You Slide, coming later this month on Vulture.

Keeping it all in the Alan Braxe family, fellow Vulture Music artist Xander Milne (XM) has remixed Kids at Midnight’s 2010 track, “No No Yeah Yeah,” and we’re excited to premiere the track here. The original starts off with “bleep bloops” that could easily be found soundtracking a Mario Bros video game and Jane Hanley’s vocals are equally as playful. XM gives the track a plump baseline, some groovy synths and the always welcome hand claps.

Let You Slide is out on Vulture March 5th.
